This past weekend I had the opportunity to meet 4 fabulous girls. I knew three of them from living in the community, and one was a new face but I learned so much about each of their beautiful personalities in the few hours we spent together. Working with these girls, fellow photographer Amanda Stratton and fellow kinettes was so much fun and we had a total blast.
This year running of the title of Paddyfest Ambassador 2011 are Ashley Aylward, Taylor Danbrook, Victoria Hinschberger and Laura Kellum These four girls will compete on Saturday March 5th to become this years Ambassador. I hope that each enjoys the experience and take it all in to help them grow as individuals.

Humouring me we went out side for 1 quick photo of each girl. Now the girls were a little upset about standing outside and in some snow but I have to say these are some of my favourite pics of the day.
We finished up the photo session with some fun photo booth style pictures at the 2011 Paddyfest Head quarters – Life’s a party…. There were so many laughs and I think the competition for the crown has already begun!
Finally the girls went out into the community together for the first time this year helping to collect Zehrs tapes to raise money for Cystic Fibrosis. They were not afraid to talk and mingle with customers, while supporting a great cause.
Thanks ladies for a wonderful day. I cannot wait to spend more time with you in the next month as Paddyfest gets underway! The best of luck to each of you as the date gets closer.
